We're moving to America!

Posted on 04/04/2013 4:45:08 PM PDT by FreedFromNY

Finally, after years of dreaming, we've finally moving from New Yorkistan to America (the outskirts of Atlanta, to be exactly)! I accepted the transfer offer today, for a position that I really wanted & I'm pretty sure I'm going to love. And to all the Georgia residents out there, I solemnly swear that we will not mess up your state. We're moving to Georgia because we like what it is, not because we want to change it.

Having been raised in captivity, I'm thinking it may take us a while to adapt to the wild (AKA freedom). But I'm positive that we're going to love it!!!

Once we're down there, I'm switching my username to "EscapedFromNY".

I really like Georgia but you would have to pay me a hundred thousand a week for me to live in Atlanta. I hope you are really away from the city hopefully in one of the towns created to escape that city’s predations.

well Yankee[smiles], at least you woke up and are doing what my wife did and get the hell out of the north east.
Least your money will not now go to the liberal socialist agendas , at least marriage is saved for how it has been for a thousand years and now you will feel freedom and trust me YOU WILL NOTICE.

Fires in the backyard, no emissions, eat what you want, get more house for your money, etc

So long as you don’t moan about grits, accents, confederate flags and how slow it is then you’ll be fine and love it down here.

BTW what part are you going to , is it near Rome which is beautiful?

You picked a very good time to leave NY.

Congratulations on the new job and an attitude that I am sure will be appreciated in GA.

Well, I grew up in NYC and I love it...or I would love it if it were not for tax and control freaks like Bloomberg, who are unfortunately all too welcome among the ruling elite. I’d be back there tomorrow if they weren’t going to tax me to death and issue dire penalties for my softdrink choices. And I never even drink soda - I hate it, but I hate even more being told that I can’t drink it! As for taxes, I don’t even earn a lot of money, but they’d take it all.

I live in Florida now: no state income tax.

Atlanta is going to be a little different. It has its own ruling elite, like anyplace, and you’ll have to readjust to it. Don’t expect paradise.

Welcome to southern hospitality—good people down here; you’ll appreciate it.

But, be advised—we Southerners expect people to keep their promises.

was having a conversation with others the other day about how anyone can still live up in the north east, and I saw this thread.

Honestly like others pointed out the other day, how conservative can still live up there with all the taxes, cold weather, roads awful all the rules and laws, the homosexuals infiltrating all parts of society. schools closing , even churches closing, tax money going to Dem socialist Gov’s who then take your money and give it to their social agenda;s, unions , oh hell the list is endless.

We all went to Holy land in Orlando and boy I;m so happy to live in my county where people talk English, open land, republicans outnumber Dems and non party combined, still southern accents and southerners or even yankess like the OP who escaped the socialist north and don’t want the south to change, of course if one is looking for diversity then this county is not for them.

Notice that little blue spot, that’s where a few Dem voting blacks and college kids live .

So a Damn Yankee is moving to the South. Always keep in mind because you are from North of the Mason-Dixon Line and East of Ohio, you will always be known as a Damn Yankee. The rest of the North during the “War Between the States” is just Yankee. Congratulations on the job and the move To Dixie. I miss living in Mississippi (I just do not miss the pollen though). I envy you I am stuck up here in the UP of Michigan, where on Friday and Saturday several inches of snow is predicted.

I plan to tell people I’m a political refuge (which is the truth). I’ll be working 20 miles NE of Atlanta, and I have no need to go into the city itself unless I choose to do so (kind of like my current relationship with NYC, except in Atlanta, I’ll be able to drink a big gulp. While carrying.)

I know quite a few people at our Atlanta location already, and I’ve visited the area a few times over the years. I had a choice between Tampa & Atlanta, and I went with my gut - the people I know from Atlanta are some of the nicest people I’ve ever met. Great people, my husband loves grits, I love biscuits, and I’m determined to learn to slow my pace down & smell the roses. I know the traffic is like the 7th circle of hell, so I plan to choose my home carefully. I also know that some areas have serious crime issues, so I’m going to be careful to select a neighborhood with a lower crime rate, surrounded by neighborhoods with lower crime rates (to slow down the creep). Where I live on Long Island, I have MS13 gang members living down the street from me. So I think I’m good....

As soon as you get your new drivers license go down to the local probate judge’s office and pay them a few dollars (it used to be $12) and get you concealed carry license.

They have to give it to you.

Congratulations on moving to the South, but Atlanta is no longer the great city as in the past. Arlanta is high majority black, but the total population of the city is barely over 500,000.

My parents grew up in Atlanta, but that was many years ago.
I assume that you will live in one of the suburban cities
that surround Atlanta.

you know the saying about a yankee and a damn yankee? LOL

Hey Dixie boy get yourself home, the south awaits with open arms.

Here is one damn damn damn yankee who needs to go home

We had a mixed couple, man black and white women from NY move here a few months ago.
Only black guy in the neighborhood and we are over 90% white in this county.
He moves here and sees me and others driving past his house, as he never works ,
As I and others drive by he sees confederate flags on the plates or stickers.
Hes renting the first house in the neighborhood.

He has called the cops on a few people and now on me and I got a visit from the cops the other day.
Seems the guy thinks people are doing racial harassment because we drive by his house to get in the neighborhood and we have confederate stickers or plates on.
After the last few calls the cops told him to knock it off and that he;s wasting police time and that we have a right to drive on a public road as we need to get to our own houses.

Now he is one damn race baiting yankee who needs to go home

Interesting. Someone I know who lived in NY all his life moved to Cary about 10 years ago. He absolutely loves every aspect of Cary. So what area in NC don't you colonize NY'ers from the real south?
